The company my wife works for sent us a Netgear FVG318 Prosafe VPN\nrouter for inclusion into our network here at home. The current\nconfiguration is:\nNetgear something modem gateway provided by Road Runner Business\nclass\nNetgear FVG318 VPN router with static IP address (no wireless feature\nactivated) Used as VPN tunneling device to their facilities and also\nas DHCP serveron the LAN side.\nLinksys WRT54G set up as WAP (no connection to WAN port) for our\nwireless devices\nLinksys RTP300 VOIP (Vonage) router connected into one of the\nWRT54G's switched ports\n\nWe have 3 wireless PC's and 2 wired. No problems here. We ahve run\nthe network minus the FVG318 for 2 years without problems.\n\nThe problem is that the 318 drops its Internet connection randomly\nand frequently such that the RTP300 is NOT seen by Vonage and phone\ncalls to our home phone are forwarded to my cell phone which is the\nnumber to use when the network is down. I have checked and my home\nphone is NOT forwarded to my cell. Sometimes one can call the home\nnumber and when they are forwarded to the cell, just hang up and\nredial the home number and get through to thew Vonage router and then\nto our house phone system.\n\nThe bottom line here is that I have discussed theis problem with Road\nRunner and Netgear Tech supportm and Netgear seems to think the 318\nis not fast enough for 10 mbit on the WAN side and 54mbit (or\nthereabouts) on the LAN.\n\nThe engineers at my wife's company are convinced that the 318 is the\nproblem and currently is at a dead end, and have offered to send me a\nNetgear FVS338 in its place.\n\nThey use Sonicwall at their network centers and I said we would take\none of those, but they said it was not economically feasible\n(shucks), and the FVS338 will do the job for us. That's what they\nsaid when the FVG318 arrived.\n\nAnyone with FVS338 experience have anything to say about such drop\nouts? ?\n\nYour opinions are appreciated.
